>> thank you, miss okeff. anybody have any questions, commissioner murase and vice president? >> thank you, very much for that presentation. i think that it is so important for our families and our communities to understand these changes. my question is about the elementary level, you have listed three schools, but i assume the changes will impact more than those three schools, the elementary level. i am thinking in particular, about rosa parks and there was a major petition campaign about busing from rosa parks to after school programs. so i wanted to know where we can find information about the list of elementary schools that are impacted and in particular, about the connection to after school programs. >> thanks, commissioner murase. this is actually the list of schools. so we don't anticipate for the 13-14 school year making any changes beyond this in order to get to the 25 buses. but we do imagine that throughout this year, we need to kind of a planning process to make sure that the services as currently designed do meet the board's policy guidelines and do provide equal

the connection to after school programs. >> thanks, commissioner murase. this is actually the list of schools. so we don't anticipate for the 13-14 school year making any changes beyond this in order to get to the 25 buses. but we do imagine that throughout this year, we need to kind of a planning process to make sure that the services as currently designed do meet the board's policy guidelines and do provide equalable access. in deeper conversations with the school communities and working with the superintendents to think about what adjustments might be needed in the future. in terms of 13-14, it would be these are the only changes that we are recommending for the 13-14 school year. >> so, i'm work curious, if you can provide us not right now, but some just sort of a snapshot and data, i feel like i have lost, sort of, we had a lot of data around this when we were doing the student assignment. what schools are served by buses. you know? just sort what that looks like now or maybe what it will look like in the 13-14 school year, over all trends, how many students? are we seeing any trends in term

presentation. i think it's an important part to hear about. thank you. >> commissioner murase. >> i'm sorry. there is no response to that? that was for now and if you have a response and yes, i would like you to incorporate that understanding in your ongoing updates about this work. sorry. if you have something now i would most certainly like to hear about it. >> sorry about that. >> there is no question in order for us to be successful where we're seeing acceleration is because we're student centered but none of that is possible. we know that the teachers are at heart of this reform. some of the things you heard about today it's because teams of teachers are putting their heads together and are reflecting on student work. they're planning their lessons together. they're really being deliberate how they share some of their practices with one another. that's what makes a lot of this possible. our school communities are built on that community of professionals and yes leaderships critical to make sure the conditions are there for our teachers, but it's our teachers who make it happen

in the classroom and school site. thank you. >> commissioner murase. >> yes. i want to thank staff for this information in a user friendly format. i think the graphics are great. it's easily accessible. i want to thank staff for that. three comments. first i really think in light of 25% budget cuts from the state in the recent time period that these scores are remarkable. really rationally the scores should be going down; right? because we have 25 less resources. we have forced closure dispais layoffs and defies logic that the test scores are moving in the right direction and i really want to think and it's possible only as the commissioner pointed out and the blood and sweat of the tears of parents and peers and students and before my comment on the scores i want to congratulate you on the drop of suspension rates and they're deathly. are you removing kids from a learning environment and giving up on them and bringing that down to 4% is really huge and i attribute that to board leadership and restorative practices, leadership at the school sites and to principals and claud
